I'm not one of those smug pregnant women that just wanted a healthy baby. No, I might not have voiced it too many times out loud but I really wanted a healthy baby that also happened to be a boy. Honestly I figured that since we already had one boy we were bound to have another because that seems logical. I mean, check out our storage closet, we have a crapton of boy clothes! When I change a little girl's diaper I am always briefly shocked that a part has broken off. I am the minority in the house and I am okay with that.
After telling you that, it should come as no shock that we had our 20 week ultrasound on Friday and SURPRISE, the baby is a girl. As in, not a boy. Hahaha, life you are cruel and really think you're funny, don't you?
Jparks and I spent Friday in shock, taking in the news, and trying to process it. Please don't misunderstand, we are both very excited about having a girl, but when you are certain you're having a boy, an ultrasound that tells you otherwise is a shock. Hell, even the ultrasound tech mentioned just how shell shocked we seemed.
Over the course of the weekend we have definitely digested the news and have moved onto bigger issues than just missing boy bits. We've started the hunt for girl names which means my bedtime reading is now stressful and involves a lot of vetoing jparks' name suggestions from things in his video game.
No honey, we will not name our daughter after your in-game corporation or your mobile app for tracking your character stats (Aideron and Aura, for those that are curious)
Child, you can thank me later for talking your father out of those names.
